I decided to try my hand at putting together a short animation using State made by Xtranormal. With this software, you can turn text into a movie. I decided to animate part of the opening sequence to Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, written by Joss Whedon, Zack Whedon, Jed Whedon, and Maurissa Tancharoen. The original 2008 musical tragicomedy produced for the Internet, tells the story of low-rent supervillain Dr. Horrible, his hero nemesis Captain Hammer, and his romantic interest Penny.
The basics of the software a easy to learn, but it takes time to learn the different nuances, such as camera tracking and gestures. I definitely look forward to putting together my next animation now that I have the basic learning curve out of the way. So, without further ado, here is my animated opening to Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog.
